In the Garden With: Stacy Bass

Do you remember our friend Stacy Bass? She had a great series here about garden photography (which she is really good at) called First Light. She taught us about frame, focus, and composition as well as creating photography books and preparing your garden to be photographed. Well, if you loved all that, you might also love her book….

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

I have been trying to sort out what the remainder of my 2012 year should entail…and playing into that is the most current of events.  I am quite frankly having trouble wanting to talk about much of anything here — it is partially the season (quiet winter) and it is mostly that I just want to put it all…

I don’t want to, but guess I might need to — give up the fight and go lay down (I’m not shaking this stomach thing).  I know this because even these pictures (which I have been obsessing over since I first came across them a few days ago) aren’t enough to cheer me on.  …
